  • The 4th of February baptism in Macroom RC looks like Georgius Cooke to me, father Ferdinand Cooke, mother Ellena Barry - see right hand page near the bottom

  • A further check shows at least two baptisms for the parents names you mentioned in Macroom RC during the early 1800s, Richard in December 1829 and Anna in April 1826, parents in both of these are Ferdinand Faulks/Foulks and Ellen/Ellena Barry

    The initial C in the surname for the  baptism for George on 4th February 1828 is the same as the C in Callaghan in the entry above this - so I believe a very definite C and therefore Cooke ??

    I dont see a promising marriage in the area for Ferdinand Faulks/Foulks or Cook[e] - it's a pretty rare firstname in the early 1800s
